Hi all, I have a few XML files from the client, and cannot save target files due to the following error:


Failed to save target content: Cannot find file type definition with id XML FirstSpirit


Any help will be appreciated.

SDLXLIFF or XML? Nov 19, 2012

Hi Natalie,

Was the file you were provided already converted to SDLXLIFF or were you provided with the XML and a filetype?

The message sounds as though Studio can't locate the filetype that is needed to recreate the XML from the SDLXLIFF.

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul Nov 20, 2012

I received both: XML and SDLXLIFF.

I used SDLXLIFFs for translation and sent them to the client, but the client asked to send them also the ready XMLs. As I received the abovementioned error, I tried to re-translate the files from scratch (i.e. from XML). However, in this case I received exactly the same error, hence my request for help...

Thank you,
Natalia

Filetypes for XML Nov 20, 2012

Hi Natalie,

I would expect to see this error when you tried to save target from the original sdlxliff unless you were also provided with the FirstSpirit filetype... but not if you created the sdlxliff yourself. Did you create a filetype for the xml so you could translate it and how do you know you would be extracting the same text for translation as the text inside the supplied sdlxliff?

What I don't understand is how you get this error when you start off with the xml file and create your own sdlxliff. Did you use a Project perhaps and add the xml file to the same Project as the one containing the sdlxliff? Even like this it should not be looking for an existing filetype.

Does your client have this filetype so they can send it to you?

I'm not sure what to suggest here... although I can take a look at your setup if you like? If you drop me an email we can arrange this today... first thing preferably.

Regards

Paul

I haven't created any special filetype; I have checked the existing filetypes for XML, and there are five of them. I have no idea how the FirstSpirit type is different from them and how to create a new filetype in this case.

I have tried all possible ways: adding files to the existing project, creating a new project, and opening files for translation without creating a project.


Does your client have this filetype so they can send it to you?


I have asked them and am waiting for the response.
